Google Ad Links aren't my Favorite

So, I just tested out the new Ad Links feature released by Google as part of their Adsense product. I have to say that I'm not impressed. See Exhibit A below.

Cool. Options. Google is good at anticipating their users' needs. I can even customize the look of the ads similar to how it's always been.

Here's where the problem comes for me. When you click on one of these links, it just seemingly goes to a page that Google does not feel like customizing to meet the needs of my blog readers.

Along with bringing the color customization to the page of links, I'd like to see would have the clicked links open in a new window. Can you accomplish that by CSS?

All in all, I like the idea behind this, but they should be calling it Ad Links beta. I think that they need to add some more functionality to this, and it's looking like a good start.
